Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, here's a Sneak Peek from tomorrow's shows -

For the background, with the stamp in my hand I randomly stamped a section of the Botanical Spray Stamp using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I used second generation so that the Peacock Feathers Ink wasn't so bright. I then filled in some of the gaps with the little Bee that comes with the Botanical Spray using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Fubu Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Peacock Feathers.

I stamped the Regal Iris Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in Sue's Granada Die Set, positioning the image towards the left-hand side. I inked through the die with Peacock Feathers. I coloured the flower in using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints - I used Soft Grass, Persian Sea and Yellow Sun from the Brights Set. I coloured the frame in using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Iris using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using the smallest die in Sue's Cordoba Die Set and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I popped a little Cosmic Shimmer Teal Sparkle PVA onto my Craft Sheet. I added a little water and painted it onto a Black Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Mini Pearl Swirl, some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Teal Sparkle PVA around the edges.

All the stamps on tomorrow's shows are available now in my Amazon Store in the singles section here.

Thanks for stopping by.
